Jellyfish and turtles(2)

  1. 1. Jellyfish Habitats and Environmental Impacts on Marine Life Presented by: Melissa Hartman & Pamela Moore
  2. 2. Georgia Performance StandardS3L1. Students will investigate the habitats of different organisms and the dependence of organisms on their habitat. a. Differentiate between habitats of Georgia (mountains, marsh/swamp, coast, Piedmont, Atlantic Ocean) and the organisms that live there. b. Identify features of green plants that allow them to live and thrive in different regions of Georgia. c .Identify features of animals that allow them to live and thrive in different regions of Georgia. d. Explain what will happen to an organism if the habitat is changed. S3L2. Students will recognize the effects of pollution and humans on the environment. a. Explain the effects of pollution (such as littering) to the habitats of plants and animals. b. Identify ways to protect the environment. c. Conservation of resources
  3. 3. Jellyfish • Phylum: Cindaria (which means that they can sting you, OUCH! Don’t pick up jellyfish on the beach, they can still sting you and some can be very painful and make you very sick) • There are over 200 Species (that’s a bunch of relatives) • They come in a variety of sizes and shapes. The sizes range from the 1 inch Caribbean jellyfish to as long as 100 feet (think 6 cars front bumper to rear bumper in a line) of the Artic Lion’s Mane and weighing over a ton. FACT: Jellyfish have no brain, backbone, heart, or blood
  4. 4. Habitat: Jellyfish live mostly in shallow coastal waters but have been found in depths of 12, 000 feet (wow!! that’s deep, that is about the same depth as the Titanic)
  5. 5. • Jellyfish are known for their brilliant colors
  6. 6. because they feed on dead and dying fish that are dying as a result of pollution. They like the polluted environment because they do not have any competition for their food. When you add the warmer waters the jellyfish are becoming a big problem for fishers and swimmers. The jellyfish are filling the fishing nets of the fishermen and they are not able to catch the fish that support them and their families. There has also been reported and increase in the number of human deaths that resulted from jellyfish stings. Not many organisms feed on Jellyfish but one does!
  7. 7. Sea Turtles
  8. 8. • Phylum: Vertebrata • Only 7 species • Life span = 20-25 years • Size depends upon species. • Small Kemp’s ridley weighs between 80-100 pounds • Enormous Leatherback can weigh up to 2000 pounds
  9. 9. Habitat: • Live in almost every ocean basin throughout the world. • Nest on beaches • Migrate long distances to feed. Sometimes crossing entire oceans. Spend their entire lives at sea. • Adult females go ashore to lay eggs several times per season every 2-5
  10. 10. • Have been around for over 100 million years but in danger of going extinct • Main threat is people killing them for food. • Now they’ve become a hazard for us. • Absorb pollution from the ocean • Pesticides • Metals like mercury • Also carry salmonella • Research shows people can get sick and die from eating turtle meat.
